'The Giver' Movie Will Partly Be In Black & White - Watch The Featurette!

It’s been confirmed — The Giver will partly be in black and white.

Just like the novel where people see in black and white, the film will be seen in black and white AND color, the studio confirmed.

“I began to think about how important memory is. What would happen if we could manipulate human memory?” author Lois Lowry shares in the featurette below.

She continues, “And when a writer begins to think questions like that, starting with ‘What If?’, then a story begins.”

The Giver, which opens on August 15th, is set in a seemingly perfect community, without war, pain, suffering, differences or choice. Now, a young boy (Thwaites) is chosen to learn from an elderly man about the true pain and pleasure of the “real” world.

Nat Wolff, Nick Robinson, Brenton Thwaites, More Up For Augustus in 'Fault in Our Stars'

Pick your Augustus!

Nat Wolff, Ansel Elgort, Nick Robinson, Noah Silver and Brenton Thwaites are all on the shortlist for the film adaption of “The Fault In Our Stars”, Variety is reporting.

Augustus is Hazel’s (Shailene Woodley) love interest. He was diagnosed with osteosarcoma at a young age and lost his right leg to the disease. He loves video games, in particular Counterinsurgence 2: The Price of Dawn and the novelizations of the game.

“The Fault in Our Stars” summary: Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE TO PLAY AUGUSTUS?
